England win netball gold at Commonwealth Games

Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games

England had spent much of the fourth quarter playing catch-up, and Neville admitted extra-time would not have favoured her team.

"I've been to many Commonwealth Games and Wales always has a good team spirit".

"I just tried to keep getting points as quick as possible to finish the game, so I am very happy".

The outstanding Geva Mentor has been to four previous Commonwealth Games and is one of five players to play their netball in the southern hemisphere; Chelsea Pitman was already a world champion with Australia before switching allegiance thanks to a Yorkshire-born father, and Jade Clarke just happened to win her 150th cap in Sunday's final.

Growing up and rising through the ranks as a promising goal shooter, Housby had dreamed about such moments.

Helen Housby, whose score sealed their first victory in a major final, said afterwards on Instagram: "The best day of my life".

"All I remember was having the ball in my hands and then running away screaming because the final whistle had gone."

"Swimming gives me a pain-free day, the water is a magical place to relax with the calm I feel moving in the water", Patterson said.

We put a decent amount of money into sport at all levels, he says, and seeing the result of the investment is satisfying for the athletes and the taxpayer.

England's netball team stunned favourites Australia to take the gold medal in a last-gasp victory at the Commonwealth Games.

The leagues in those two countries are professional and their players are so revered that they star in television adverts.

After the 2015 World Cup, where England finished third following another semi-final defeat, praise and criticism has followed, but Neville's commitment to the "cycle", whether losing to South Africa or beating New Zealand in New Zealand, has been unwavering.

Harten and Housby were unerring in shooting at goal, but Australia wrested back the initiative to take a one-point lead at the interval. She missed. Was it all over? Housby was not going to let the second opportunity slip through her grasp.

Lauren Price became the first Welsh woman to win a boxing gold - while both Elinor Barker and Hollie Arnold added Commonwealth golds to their Olympic/Paralympic and world titles.

"It's my dream come true", said Neville. "It was my dream as a player and I'm living it as a coach though these players' eyes".

However, by nightfall he was on Sky News telling another former Queensland premier Campbell Newman Australia was "bigger than this".

"We have worked so hard over the last worldwide phase, we've been put in here against the world number ones and we've not beaten them once in the whole cycle that I've been in".

With netball already near the top of participation tables among Britain's young women, Neville hopes this triumph will help it grow even further. Hopefully we can back this up. "The changes yesterday and today were key to us winning". "For us as a group, we're trying to improve every single game". I was part of that and I acknowledge it.
